Seahawks mock game recap: Drew Lock, Tariq Woolen have good performances - Field Gulls

The Seattle Seahawks had their annual intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday at Lumen Field, with about 7,000 fans in attendance (concurrent with the Mariners’ win over the Angels at T-Mobile Park, mind you). Seattle’s Navy Blue team defeated the Action Green team by a score of 17-13, but the score is much less important than the performance of the players.

Both Drew Lock and Geno Smith had to lead the first- and second-team offenses, with Jacob Eason having what was apparently a very forgettable cameo running the third-teamers. It seems like 1s on 1s didn’t materialize and some of it wasn’t practical anyway due to players being sidelined due to injury.

Unofficially, Lock was 19/27 and Smith was 11/20. Both quarterbacks led touchdown passes on their respective opening series (albeit against the second-team defense). Rashaad Penny and Kenneth Walker both capped scoring drives by getting into the end zone. Here’s a glimpse of Walker and that ability to cut outside so quickly.

Lock threw a touchdown pass later in the day to Cody Thompson (more on that later). He also threw a nice completion to seventh-round pick Dareke Young, and here’s a look at that highlight.

Geno’s day started hot but cooled down considerably as the afternoon progressed, but in his better moments he clearly had good pace with DK Metcalf.

Rookie tackle Abe Lucas got the start with the 1s, with presumptive leader to take that right tackle spot Jake Curhan playing as the left tackle with the 2s. Everyone else projected to be a starter — Charles Cross, Damien Lewis, Austin Blythe, and Gabe Jackson — got first-team action today.

Now I should disclose that the Seagulls were not in attendance at this game and the live stream the Seahawks had was only of the warm-up, so our eyes and ears were basically the veteran beat reporters in attendance. The name that came up several times on defense was rookie CB Tariq Woolen, who was “hit” for a touchdown by Thompson but apparently it was a pretty crazy play.

But he had other brilliant moments!

Of course, with almost no handling and the fact that this is just a melee, don’t read too much into what happened this afternoon. Unfortunately, we had one injury and that was an elbow problem for LJ Collier, and so far there are no updates on his condition.

Seattle’s preseason begins at the Pittsburgh Steelers on August 13th at 7:00 PM ET/4:00 PM PT. And before we wrap this up, say hello to Richard Sherman!
